  • BP boss warns crude oil prices will remain high
  • Petrol could reach over £1 per litre
  • BP says it hasn't passed on full cost of crude oil

Fuel prices could soon reach over £1 a litre

High pump prices are here to stay and could even increase, said BP boss Lord Browne yesterday, as he declared BP's first-quarter profits of £3 billion.

Browne said crude oil prices were likely to remain high and could push the price of a litre of fuel above £1 across the country.

He said the company hasn't been passing on the full increases in crude oil costs to motorists, contrasting 30% rise in the price of crude with an 11% hike in the cost of petrol and diesel.
